ESPN gets to try and top the grand slam on Saturday with Sunday Night Baseball from Houston. The game of the week feature gets a national audience and has been a wagering staple for years. A premium chance to increase the bankroll or end the week a winner is upon us. Houston broke out of their offensive funk in big way against the Red Sox. Astros started as a mild home favorite here near -130 but since then Boston has gotten most of the action resulting in a Houston -110 range wager. Which way will the profit pour in from tonight on ESPN?
Sunday Night Baseball : Pitching
Boston is throwing Owens to the mound after being called from triple AAA ball. He was a former first rounder who went 4-4 last year with an over four ERA. 18 inning in AAA with 23 strikeouts and a 1.00 ERA got him back up in the bigs in a hurry. What makes this tricky to handicap is that the Astros have not seen him and that finnaly Houston got a big hit So why is it that Houston is a solid fade from the early wagering action? Is it just the brand name of Boston on a national stage?
Feldman’s Struggles Against Red Sox
Let you mind digest what your eyes see here.
- 1-4 9.37 ERA overall
- Over 15 ERA in last three starts against Boston
Seeing this, there has to be a vulnerability. The total has jumped from 8 1/2 to 9 accordingly as more money flooded in on Boston. Solution is that Boston scores more than projected by the oddsmakers. What is the ML vs RL? The gap is only 65 points or so in the alternative – 1 1/2 on the Red Sox. Digging through all the numbers we have found it. Team total runs scored by one team is the angle we will shoot for here.
Right now Boston has a team total of 4 being the slight ML underdog. Over 4 -125 on the Red Sox side is the point to profit on Good fortune on Sunday Night Baseball and we will see you later on today here at the HRW.
